Day 96: Don’t You Ever Wash That Thing?

Zappa compiled a six-volume set of his live recordings. You Can’t Do That On Stage Anymore is a 12-CD compilation that includes performances from his entire career. He stitches together songs performed by all of his line-ups so that it sounds like all of his musicians are on stage at once with different sets of performers stepping forward to perform a song.

The best of the collection is Volume 2, a complete recording of a 1971 concert in Helsinki. The line-up is great.  Ruth Underwood is the percussionist. George Duke plays keyboards.  The show is great. It is an amazing piece of music and this is my favorite song they performed that night.
